No SBS and I'm too lazy to look at the undescribed sources to try to figure out what you did. I really like the colors, but I think moving the moon more to the right might yield a more interesting diagonal composition, plus more and longer shadows would seem to be in order. The distorted, giant horse head with the unusual human-skull snout strikes me as being too small a portion of the otherwise-essentially-realistic image to convey surrealism (beyond the admittedly strking impact of the strong contrast in the foreground/background coloring) besides being more odd than spooky as required by the contest description IMO. As for the 'deadly fog' in the title, the horizon is crisp and the purple clouds look like dust from the apparently crumbling towers, so I don't see any fog. (BTW what's with the white edge on the top of the towers in hi-res?)

you can't what? do the shadows? create a new layer below the hat layer, take a black brush with 0 hardness and start painting beneath the hat where the shadow sould be. then lower the opacity to whatever seems natural and convincing. then you'll have something.

besides the above comments, you should flip the hat cause of the light source. and the stars on the flag in the sky are barely noticable

The silo work on the hat needs some clean up. I agree about the need for shadows also. The sentiment is nice.
You need to post sources as required by the rules and guidelines.

Nice idea. IMO hat is a little big and needs to cast a shadow.

Looks more like Neil Young than Elvis. (Which is actually sort of appropriate, since Young is more of a rock god than Elvis ever was).

Say what you will author but the lens flare does not seem to be naturally occurring and is not consistent with the lighting strength of the photo. I too see this as a photoshopped image.

I'm not that good with photography but this looks photoshopped to me (something I am more familiar with). The lens flare, vignette and the DOF look like they have been manipulated. The lack of a High Res doesn't help either way.

how did you get that look to it. It is kind of neat in a way (for another picture) but it almost seems manipulated. It would be neat to know how you got that sunspot so clear.

Very well shot, it definitely looks scary, but maybe that's because I really don't like needles.
